As it became known this winter, Madonna plans to continue her directing career and make a movie W.E about the relationship of British monarch Edward VIII and American Wallis Simpson. Here are initially invited for the lead role Vera Farming dropped out of the project.
Besides, Madonna couldn't agree with Yuen MacGregor, whose name was on the role of young Edward. The reason on which Vera Farming is no longer among the cast member, the producers are still hiding.
Now on the screen to meet two representatives of the acting dynasty. Veteran of British film James Fox will play King George V, while his son Lawrence Fox will get the role of George VI, or Bertie, as he was called in the family. He made atonement for the throne after his elder brother Edward had only 10 months as Britain king and was not even crowned. Edward VIII abdicated in December 1936 to marry the divorced American Wallis Simpson.
In the role of Simpson now would be Andrea Riseborough, which this year can be seen in the film "Never Let Me Go". He role of Edward VIII will play James D'Arcy.
W.E will be the film in the style of "Julie and Julia". The action will develop in our time, and in the past. Another hero - a married American woman in the performance of Abby Cornish, obsessively love story of Edward and Wallis - lives in 1998.
Madonna has been pregnant with this project long ago. The script she wrote with Alec Keshishyan, director of the documentary "Madonna: Truth or Dare". In one version of the script 70-year-old Simpson was dancing at a concert Sex Pistols.
But so far it is unclear where Madonna takes money to finance the project of her dream. It is likely that the singer has invested personal funds in the hope that the studio later buy out her picture.
